Silver Satin Pothos Plant Care

Posted by Alexander Holdinghausen on

Pothos plants are known for their ease of care and durability. They are happy placed in a bright well-lit area, however, they can tolerate lower light. They are living air purifiers, removing common household toxins from the air, making it a healthy and beautiful addition for your space.

 

Light

Silver Satin Pothos likes bright, indirect light year round. Harsh, direct sunlight will scorch the leaves, while too little light will cause the leaves to lose their variegation.

Water

Water your Pothos when the top 50% of the soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer. Look out for yellow leaves, they are a symptom of too much water.

Humidity

Your bathroom or kitchen would be a great choice for your Silver Satin Pothos because it does best in a slightly more humid environment. Brown leaf tips may indicate the air is too dry.

Temperature

Silver Satin Pothos prefer average to warm temperatures of 15-25 degrees. Do not expose it to temperatures below 65 degrees even for a short time because cold air will damage the foliage. Avoid cold drafts and sudden temperature changes.

 

Food

Feed monthly or every other month in the spring and summer with a general-purpose indoor plant fertilizer.

Toxicity

Pothos are mildly toxic to pets and humans. It can cause a mild irritation to the mouth if chewed or swallowed and also a mild digestive reaction.

Additional Care

Trim out any dead, discolored, damaged, or diseased leaves and stems as they occur with clean, sharp scissors. Snip stems just above a leaf node; new growth will emerge from this cut and trimming close to the node will also prevent an ugly stub at the site. Use sharp pruning shears to avoid tearing the stems.
